Social Security Number

It is essential that SMU has the correct social security number on record for you, for several reasons:

  • Tax reporting accuracy
  • Synchronization of internal records
  • Employment verification purposes

If you need to have your social security number corrected in SMU's records, please contact the appropriate department based on your primary relationship with SMU:

Faculty (regular or adjunct) – Take proof of your social security number (your SSN card) to the Department of Human Resources in Expressway Tower.

Staff (regular or temporary) – Take proof of your social security number (your SSN card) to the Department of Human Resources in Expressway Tower.

Student – Take proof of your social security number (your SSN card) to Jean Porter at the Registrar’s Office in the Blanton building.


Have you legally changed your name?

You need to register your legally changed name with the Social Security Administration before SMU can process your name change. Bring your new social security card - reflecting your new name - to the appropriate department, as indicated above.
